Yoga Syahputra, better known as Olga Syahputra, (8 February 1983 – 27 March 2015) was an Indonesian actor, comedian, singer, and television presenter.

Early life[edit]

Olga Syahputra was born on 8 February 1983 in Jakarta. He was the eldest child of Nur Rachman and Nurshida. Olga's younger brother, Billy Syahputra, is also a presenter, comedian and actor.[1]

He started his career by joining “Lenong Bocah” with his friend, Ruben Onsu, with whom he used to share a flat.


Syahputra was seen in numerous Indonesian TV programs, especially during the annual Ramadhan festival. He was offered a role in the movie Lenong Bocah. The role required him to take advanced training in Padang-Java[clarification needed] at the Sanggar Ananda owned by Aditya Gumay. Without money, Olga sold a refrigerator to pay for classes. A friend, Bertrand Antolin, later purchased a new refrigerator for him.[2]

He began to get roles in soap operas, including Kawin Gantung and Si Yoyo. He then became a presenter for Ngidam on SCTV paired with Jeremy Thomas. Olga appeared in Jangan Cium Gue, followed by Extravaganza ABG in 2005. By this time, Olga was becoming well known in Indonesia. His breakout year was 2007 when he appeared with Indra Bekti and Indy Barends at the Ceriwis on Trans TV.[3]

In 2008, Olga became a TV presenter of music events on Dahsyat, a morning show on RCTI. His co-presenter since March 2011 was Jessica Iskandar.[4] Olga won the award for Favorite Music/Variety Show Presenter and Favorite Comedian in 2009 Panasonic Awards and 2010 Panasonic Awards. He also starred in such movies as Skandal Cinta Babi Ngepet and Mau Lagi (released as Cintaku Selamanya).[citation needed]

Olga was reprimanded by the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI) for off-color remarks he made while hosting the music show Dahsyat on RCTI on May 1, 2009.[5][6]

Personal life[edit]

Olga was a friend of the actor and presenter Raffi Ahmad and brother of Billy Syahputra. He opened a boutique with his sister, Reny Nurman, named "Rumah Olga Syahputra" located in South Jakarta.

Health and death[edit]

In April 2014, Olga Syahputra was diagnosed with meningitis. He was treated at Pondok Indah Hospital and in Germany,[7] before going to Singapore, where he was treated at Mount Elizabeth Hospital. He died there at the age of 32 on 27 March 2015.[8][9]
